Creativity Takes Courage
Mrs Bott and Miss Stell have both completed the required training to become recognised Arts Award advisers at the Discover and Explore levels. We hope to begin offering these awards in the Autumn term to students in the Junior School in the first instance with the plan to role out to the girls in the senior school at the higher levels once we become an established centre.
